Polish indie developer Robot Gentleman released a new trailer for 60 Parsecs! today and also revealed that the game would release on September 18 for $14.99.
For those who don’t know who Robot Gentleman, they’re the same team behind 60 Seconds! That game was a unique twist on the survival formula as the start of each run had you running around the house grabbing supplies and your family in the final seconds before a nuclear attack.
60 Parsecs! builds on a lot of the themes and gameplay elements from their last game. Robot Gentleman are leaning really hard on the Cold War propaganda element for example, and using that to substantiate a lot of world building in the new game. In addition to taking advantage of the prep timer, there’s also lots more event and randomized challenges in this game that the player will have to contend with.
If you’ve ever wanted to go on a journey to search for a new planetary home for humanity while dragging a ragtag crew through battles with aliens, environmental hazards, pirates and more, then this is the game for you.
Check out the trailer for 60 Parsecs! down below. The game releases September 18 for PC on Steam. You can learn more about the game at the official site. It sounds like a really fun game, and you should probably check it out.
Here’s more information from Robot Gentleman:
Building upon the success of debut title 60 Seconds!, this darkly comedic romp tasks players with scavenging as many supplies as they can carry (in 60 seconds, of course), before blasting off into space and attempting to survive on their spoils in a non-linear, narrative-driven adventure.
Melding sci-fi pop culture of the 1950s and ‘60s with Cold War and Space Race propaganda, 60 Parsecs! aims to provide gamers with a fresh take on space travel that’s both fantastic and oddly believable. In other words, you’ve never seen space travel quite like this.
This fresh coat of outer space paint is joined by a whole host of improvements to the core scavenging and survival of 60 Seconds! From completely overhauled gameplay mechanics and the introduction of a crafting system, to a deeper, more personal narrative that will take your hapless crew on a planet-hopping journey through known (and unknown) space, 60 Parsecs! lives up to its suitably larger name.
